In Module Three you learned about the project stakeholder, now called a product owner. For this activity, you will create a short written paper, sometimes called a “fact sheet” or “information paper.” The product owner is concerned about the entire Agile process, his role, and his new responsibilities. In this information paper, you will describe the process, role, and responsibilities of the product owner. The target audience is the stakeholder from a traditional project management environment who now finds he is a “product owner” in Agile/Scrum project management.
